Outlook-for-Mac-2011 + GPGTools

  • GPG Keychain Access Version 1.0b7 (1.0b7)
  • MSFT Outlook for Mac 2011, Version 14.2.4
  • OS X version: 10.7.5
  • GPGTools Installer date:

Two questions:

1) How to I get Outlook:Mac to use my new local GPG keys from my keychain?

2) How do I "import" my old PGP keys from external servers like pgp.mit.edu?

Many thanks,

    in order to answer your question we'd have to know which GPG plugin you use for Outlook. GPGTools does not come with such a plugin, it only supports the native OS X Mail application.

    To answer your second question, you should have a backup of your old keys, since the keyservers only store the public key portion of your keys.
    In order to import the old keys, please follow this step by step guide:
